Hi there. I'm so sorry to hear that she is not doing well. As you know, the best thing would be to see a vet right away. Since that's not an option, here's what I'd do. Withhold food and water for 8 hours, and give her 1/4 tablet of a 10mg Pepcid A/C. Then if she doesn't vomit during that time, offer some water, and if she holds that down, offer a bland diet of boiled chicken breast and white rice. If at any point she is extremely lethargic, rub some Karo syrup or honey on her gums. This is about all you can do at home... then get her to a vet as soon as possible. Best of luck!
